NEWPORT—Newport City Council on Tuesday approved a motion for drainage and site preparation for a new combination library/museum complex to be built downtown.

A clause was added to make the deal with Robert G. Campbell & Associates, the engineering firm, "contingent upon closing" on a USDA Rural Development loan for the project.

A separate motion was passed to approve a contract with Michael Brady, Inc. for architectural services on the new complex, contingent upon the closing of properties purchased to make way for the complex. The owner of the firm, Michael Brady, gave a virtual tour PowerPoint presentation on a proposed design of the new building.

A separate motion to renovate the back part of City Hall was defeated. Aldermen Bugg and Morgan voted for the renovation; Holt, Gregg, and Costner voted it down.
